Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: How did you find your way here?

Let’s see. We moved here late in 1994 and it was a good while before I ran into another Dead fan. He worked at the health food store and my visits there often were more lengthy than required, as we would converse just a bit longer than proper since he was working. That was the first time I was aware of internet trading, and he would burn me copies of rare finds he had acquired, although I have no recollection of him mentioning this place. Sometime after I began my present job in 2003, a temporary worker there was also a head, and he raved about the archive, brought me many soundboards and lent me spindles of cds to copy. Our acquaintance was short lived, but fruitful for me musically.

We didn’t have easy internet access out where we lived, nor the money. But when my marriage came to an end in the fall of 2006 I moved into the ‘city’ on my own, one consolation being that I could easily obtain internet. So I guess my first time here was spring 2007 and I became a frequent visitor, totally amazed at the bounty. I would read this forum whenever the subject interested me and came to know some of you all, but didn’t begin posting myself until about a year and a half ago. Come here everyday now. Like you, high flow, I strike up a conversation and promote this place to anybody who looks like they ‘fit the bill.’
